MORE THAN WORDS was strongly fancied to score at the first time of asking but found one too good over 6f at Kempton last month. She showed plenty of early pace so this drop back in trip looks a good move and Richard Hannon's filly is taken to make amends. Intransigent began his career with an outing over 7f, but he's related to a couple of winners over today's minimum trip and could figure. Placed on his last five starts, Lupo D'Oro looks best of the remainder unless Lost City makes a big improvement on his debut run at the Curragh back in March.
